Viewpoints Industry TV to Report on the Cell Phone Kill Switch on an Upcoming Segment

Viewpoints Industry TV looks at whether a kill switch will deter theft of mobile devices.

Coral Springs, FL, June 22, 2014 --( Viewpoints Industry TV reports that nearly 1 in 3 robberies in the country consist of the theft of a mobile phone, and these crimes cost victims upwards of $30 billion in 2012 alone. The big three operating systems that power almost all smart phones in the US, Android, Apple iOS and Windows Phone, will each install a "kill switch" in their software beginning with the next versions they release. The kill switch means a stolen phone would not operate without a password and therefore be useless to a thief. It remains to be seen if this will deter theft of mobile phones, since the criminal element has long had the ability to wipe the phones clean and start fresh. Time -- and next year's crime statistics -- will tell.
